12 & 13 April
Emelie "Empo" Enlund (SWE)
We Love Holocene IV
Emelie "Empo" Enlund from the collective JUCK is back at Dansens Hus! Now with her own performance about humanity’s relation to the climate crisis.
We Love Holocene is a performance project created by the dancer and choreographer Emelie En-lund. With elements from street dance, philosophy and history this project has delved into a world of ideas that may offer us new paths ahead – towards inner and outer sustainability.
The performance becomes an existential journey which takes place in the past, the present and the future. An encounter between hope, dreams, ecological collapse and a proposal to lay aside one’s own capitalistic identity for a moment in order to potentially realise what remains. A really bad goody bag to bring home in the spring night.
The audience will move through the performance space during the show. Welcome, on an exciting and poetic journey!
Emelie ”Empo” Enlund’s field is street dance and performance. Dansens Hus’ audiences first saw her during the festival Urban Connection 2014 where she premiered her performance CAUSES. In 2015 she returned to the festival with her collective JUCK (HUMP) who completely brought the house down. During the autumn Empo has been the holder of the Swedish Arts Grants Committee’s residency grant in Uferstudios in Berlin where she has developed the performance We Love Holocene. She is also one of the participants in the international artist project The Dark Mountain Project which explores art’s function in the era of the climate crisis.
